ok, so i looked everywhere, and no one has em
so i finally went to the dealer.
these little itty bitty bulbs in the visor on the sides of the mirrors cost a whopping$10.60 each, and they dont stock em, so you know im gonna be paying even more to get them shipped here.
see its stuff like that that makes me want to stop mesing with hondas man.
a frickin bulb that they could have easily used a regular one, but no they had to get some special stuff that only they have, and whats worse all four of them are blown so ill be spending like around $50 on some bulbs that should cost $0.50 if they had use one like everyone else.

Damn, they're expensive.

It shouldn't cost you any more to have them shipped to your Honda dealer, though.

hell the sales rep said, its another $10 to overnight it to them, and a little less for regular mail.
its crazy man.
you know i gotta go ask em how much they sell the other bulbs for that we get at auto stores, like the headlight bulb, and the little door, and trunk bulbs, to see just how much more they want for those.

that does suck, they shouldnt charge you to get them in stock at all.

on another note tho, i would put this on honda. i mean, all visor mirrors are basically the same, with those tiny lil lights and lenses in there. its the same thing as blaming Timex for using the expensive tiny watch batteries...

well, you kinda missed my point. i really dont think honda is doing anything different than any other manufacturer out there. all the visors in all my cars have basically had the same lights and everything, same sized visor and im willing to bet the same sized bulbs.

maybe your honda dealer is just tryin to screw you?

Giroguy made these, and they work pretty good. I had him make me some using hyper white LED's so that my wife can actually use the mirror.

Just to let you know

It should only be around $20 for 4 of them mailed. Just to let you know, trying to save you some $$. Plus you have to add in the "cool factor" for having LED's.
